The Best Crockpot Kielbasa and Green Beans Recipe
This is the best crockpot recipe because it includes the best flavor, tender vegetables, hearty potatoes, and sausage. My favorite part of this dish is that it’s super easy to make. It also doesn’t hurt that it has the best flavor. It’s a comforting meal, as most potato recipes are, perfect for a cold evening when you want something warm and filling your stomach.
One of my other Kielbasa and Green Bean recipes use tomatoes, but admittedly, I prefer this recipe without them. Tomatoes can add a rich sweetness to the dish while this is a more savory dish and not overly sweet or acidic. This is a great recipe because it focuses on the rich flavor only a handful of ingredients can bring forward, like onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.
This crockpot recipe is simpler and heavily relies on the seasoning to set when cooking in the crockpot. This method brings the dish to life because the seasoning has time to soak and seep into the meat and potatoes. If you’d like you can prepare a side dish of egg noodles or rice for a complete meal. The whole family is sure to enjoy trying a new, hearty meal like this one!

Crockpot Kielbasa and Green Beans FAQs
What does kielbasa mean?
Kielbasa means ‘sausage’ in Polish. This sausage typically contains garlic giving it a rich flavor. However, kielbasa to Americans often refers to a type of smoked sausage. Kielbasa is an Eastern European sausage, but has variations from Ukraine, Russia, and other nearby countries.
What is traditionally served with kielbasa?
For this recipe, green beans and potatoes are the vegetable of choice. I also love cabbage and kielbasa together! To make a complete dinner, a great way to pair it is with rice, egg noodles, coleslaw, or potato salad.
How long should you cook kielbasa?
For this easy recipe, the kielbasa is cooked in the crockpot for 4 hours on HIGH or 6 hours on LOW.
Can I use other potatoes for this recipe?
The short answer is yes. While I found large potatoes to be ideal (especially if you love potatoes and want a lot), you can use baby potatoes if that’s what you have on hand. Otherwise, yellow potatoes, red potatoes, or russet potatoes also work.
